From his side-splitting account of Ireland's soccer adventures at the 1994 World Cup to his widely acclaimed radio diaries for RTÉs Drivetime programme, award-winning novelist Joseph O'Connor tells tales that both parody and illuminate the strange times in which we live.
In this selection of classic journalism and non-fiction, including the very best of his Irish Male trilogy, the author of Star of the Sea and Redemption Falls displays an eye for the absurd, a lightness of touch, and a recession-busting comic spirit.
From losing his heart at a flirting class in Manhattan to Interviewing Lord Archer in a gracious London penthouse, from enduring the book-publicity trail to becoming a father, The Irish Male: His Greatest Hits is a suitcase stuffed with self-mockeries, belly-laughs and insightful raps and rhymes.
‘If laughing out loud is the only exercise you get, then read Joseph O’Connor’ – Roddy Doyle
‘If you need to spend an afternoon with a silly grin, and sometimes tears of laughter, this is your only man’ – The Irish Times
